Positive airway pressure (PAP), commonly referred to as CPAP (which more accurately refers to the subset of “continuous” PAP devices), is the gold standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. PAP therapy administers continuous air under positive pressure through the nose, mouth, or both, to prevent the collapse of the upper airway during sleep. There are a number interfaces available to administer PAP therapy, including full face masks, nasal pillows, and nasal masks. Selection of an appropriate PAP therapy interface is informed by a patient’s anatomy, preferences as well as other factors. This guide compares CPAP masks on parameters including warranty, available sizes, intentional leak, pressure range, and headgear.
